I did some mixing and some joshisms for a new Kate Rogers tune this week, and I’m really happy with how it turned out. She’s a really cool song writer with a great imagination who decided to use only sounds her body could make for this tune, no instruments. I’m totally into limiting and challenging yourself when it comes to making music, so this was a lot of fun to work on. It’s a song about feeling like you’re living in a bit of circle, same parties, same old bullshit, etc. I think we all hit that wall at some point, some sooner some later, but it’s definitely there. Check it out, and if you like it, email her and make her feel happy.
In other news, I’m trying to work on my own stuff right now and it’s just not happening. So I’m listening to these 3 songs and its keeping me in check and putting me back on a track or a treadmill or a stationary bike and yelling go go gooogo. For moral reasons I don’t know if I can put them up, but if you buy them I promise you it’ll make you happy -
“Heapphones” – Bjork from Post
